This was by far the highlight of our trip to New Orleans...came highly recommended by a friend and it certainly didn't disappoint. Very nice "vibe" and the service we received from our waiter, Nate, was impeccable! The food didn't disappoint either...presentation was wonderful, portions were great, and absolutely delicious, and pricing was very reasonable in relation to offerings and service. So glad that we finished off our quick trip to NOLA with dinner here!

As we walked in to the resturant we felt very welcomed. The decor was was chic without being overbearing. We had the amazing Crispy Pork Belly and Lobster Ravioli for starters followed by the Chicken Breast and Crispy Drum. The table service was immaculate, the food presentation and taste excellent.

overall disappointed in GW Fins- hard time understanding how this is ranked so highly. We had lobster dumpling which were pretty good, but red snapper with shrimp creole was bland and forgettable. Had much better food the following night at Jaques Imos. many better restaurants in NO - we won't be back

We have been eating at GW Fins every trip to NOLA, and it just gets better. The meal on Sunday evening was probably the 2nd best dining experience I've ever had (the 1st just can't be beat, but that's another story). Bar service, table service, food quality, everything about the visit was absolutely top-notch. Cannot wait for another trip to NOLA and another meal at GW Fins.

From a local... I’ve always been a fan of GW Fins! I had the Scalibut and it was cooked perfectly. Exactly what I wanted. The service is amazing, too. The staff is very professional and attentive but down to earth as well. Will obviously be back!

Amazingly fresh fish, Scalibut and blackened swordfish were outstanding. One landlubber ordered the Filet and said it was the best they ever had. Make this stop if you are in NOLA

This was our 2nd dinner here during our 4 day trip, it was as wonderful as 1st dinner. Can't gush enough over the great service (thanks Fallon & Omar) and outstanding food. Looking at planning another trip to New Orleans just so we can indulge in this restaurant's wonderful environment and food.

New Orleans had incredible food... However, this was our greatest meal. It's expensive, but for romantic date night or a special occasion, it's perfect. Servers are amazing (I think we had Kenny and he was great!) Try those Fin Wings!!! We ordered them twice!

I ate here once about 10 years ago. It was good then. Now, today, this is an entirely different restaurant. I lived in New Orleans for more than a decade, and at that time ate at home less than a handful of times each year. I have also eaten at restaurants around the world. This is the best restaurant at which I have ever eaten.

The food was in every respect perfect. That's across 5 diners and multiple courses. The service was perfect. The décor is restrained but enjoyable. I can't possibly say enough good things!
